Feature requests, ideas and suggestions

We are continually upgrading Trainerize with new features based on your feedback. Please add a new idea, or vote on an existing idea. This ensures your ideas don't get lost and always visible and other trainers can upvote your ideas. The idea forum allows us to keep a pulse check on what our trainer community as a whole wants.

Why should I vote?
This forum allows us to more accurately prioritize ideas to ensure a system of fairness by executing on improvements needed more urgently by a larger cohort of our trainer community, in order of voting priority. It offers you transparency into what we're reviewing, starting and have completed.

Vote subscribes you to the idea so when its status changes, you'll get notified. 

When does an idea get picked up?
The higher the votes, the more likely the idea will be completed but there is no fixed formula if an idea will be picked up as it is just one avenue we look at. The idea forum is only one of the many avenues we use to evaluate an idea's feasibility. We also factor in your conversations with our support team, in-app surveys, Facebook beta groups,  complexity of the idea, talks with our inner circle of trainers and how it fits with the overall vision of Trainerize.

For example, "Portuguese support" was for the longest time in our top 3. But embarking on that would significantly dent our ability to serve our primary English speaking community effectively.

Thanks!

  1. Unlock lessons

    Make the completed workout function as a gate keeper

    Meaning if clients don’t complete the scheduled activities/task for the day or week they are locked out of the upcoming lessons

    Until the required lessons/training/ task are completed

  2. Take a selfie after a workout that you can share via social media - this way your clients can brag about themselves and its great marketing.

    Create frames that trainers can edit (very simple - colour editing and word editing)
    After each workout, a client gets the option to take a selfie post-workout that they can share via social media. This way clients get to brag about themselves as well as help you market your new 12-week challenge (for example)

  3. Dumbbell Exercise Stat Recording Accuracy

    Hello,

    I've had confusion among clients and my team on how to record weight stats for Dumbbells.

    It seems to me that on the app side it wants total weight to be recorded to possibly account for the total volume stat for a specific exercise. This would make sense for a "DB Front Rack Squat", but on the other hand, if you have a client performing a "DB Chest Press", it seems that there could possibly be an option added to distinguish less confusion for that side of the isolated DB weight. This would make sense since the isolated side…

  4. Being able to add specific tempo/ rep/ RPE or RIR per set or superset

    It would be very nice if we can manipulate much more the workout builder...

    Indeed if I have different tempo and of course different RPE or RIR for each set I would love to be able to note it.... this is progressive overload base here...

    To make it now is very difficult and moreover to understand for client because each set or superset need to be creat individualy

  5. Ability to edit or swap out moves within circuit without needing to un group

    Right now if a circuit is grouped for a superset you have to ungroup and then regroup to edit that workout. Being able to drag and delete into the block would save a lot of time

  6. Give the option for no rest time after the last set of an exercise.

    If I give a client bench press for 3 sets and I want them resting 90 seconds between each set then I would select this on the rest time tab, however, that 90 second rest also applies after the 3rd set. What if I want them resting 3 minutes before their next exercise instead of 90 seconds? I have to select rest from the menu and select 3 minutes, but that pesky "90 second rest" is still there after their 3rd set of bench. It is a confusing feature.

  8. Custom Workout Intro and Countdown

    I don’t like the robotic voice that’s used for workout introductions. It’d be nice if trainers were able to upload a 10-sec intro to get clients ready for the workout. It’d also be nice to be able to upload a custom 5-second countdown that clients can hear when they’re approaching the end of an interval.

  10. ISO Hold exercises have a timer

    When an an exercise is elevated have the option to have it a timed exercise rather than just weights/reps. I use iso holds a lot with my at home clients and they have a hard time tracking how long they’ve done it for.

  13. Edit or modify the workout from the calendar tab

    From the Calendar Overview of the entire program, I would like to edit or modify the workout. The current options are Print and Delete. Editing the workout from the Calendar will be more efficient and less time consuming between switching tabs/pages.

  15. Option to add cover photo for workouts

    Option to upload a cover photo to workouts, instead of the screenshot of the first exercise.

    This helps make them more easily identifiable within a program, especially if all workouts begin with the same exercise (i.e. all of mine have activation exercises at the beginning, so almost all covers look the same)

  16. Estimated workout time and exercise tempo counter

    I think having a feature that estimates the time of the workout would be a great addition also a timer to count rep tempo

  17. time of cardio/body stats etc

    would like to see what time a cardio workout, body stat, etc was posted/done. Right now we can only see that info on the normal workouts.

    It's quite important info for a coach to get a better understanding of the clients lifestyle, and habits.

  18. A better integration of "Rate of Perceived Exertion" (RPE) within Regular workout design

    A better integration of RPE would include a designated field for trainers to communicate the RPE for each exercise to the client, letting them know how hard this set should feel.

    In addition, I would suggest the inclusion of a field where clients record their "Last Set Rate of Perceived Exertion" (LSRPE) This way trainers can get a more granular picture of how and where clients rate of exertion reaches or approaches failure throughout the workout rather than relying on the single exertion rating at the end of the workout.

    This could also be tied into automation, automatically generating a…

  20. Scheduling workouts throughout the day

    It would be really helpful if there was a way to sort different workouts that happen on the same day. For example, I have my warm ups, cool downs, and workouts separate from one another in the app and I would like to be able sort them in the order of how I would like my clients to perform them.

    Suggestion: a drag and drop option to sort the order of workouts and events in the day!
